Silkwood is a private, government accredited School located in a stunning bushland setting in the Gold Coast Hinterland. The School caters to children from Prep to Year 12. Silkwood also offers a Playgroup experience for parents and their 15 months to 4-year-old children. The School has several affiliations with Pre-Prep learning programs to support families with daycare before entry into Silkwood Prep.
Silkwood has developed The Silkwood Way, an educational approach that places individual student learning plans at the center and uses student interest, innovative learning styles, flexible timetables, and the Australian Curriculum to intentionally enhance every child's learning adventure. The Silkwood Way provides an alternative to traditional schooling and progresses young people through a developmental and student-centered approach to learning, focusing on 'learning how to learn.' For more information about The Silkwood Way, please download our School Manifesto. Silkwood School inspires students to explore, innovate, and thrive in their learning adventure.
We believe that Silkwood can be right for every child. However, we respect it must also be a match for a family's hopes for their child's future and offer them the best opportunity to succeed. Making the right educational choice is as essential for us as it is for you.
We welcome your interest in Silkwood School and hope you enjoy learning about us. Our partnership with families plays a crucial role in ensuring that we achieve the best for each child. The fact that you are exploring educational options for your child demonstrates that you place value on the role education plays in shaping your young person's future.
At Silkwood, we commit to creating empowered pathways for learning for all of our students seriously. We are prepared to give our best, explore possibilities, and think outside the square to enhance each child's learning adventure. The education journey of each child should match their uniqueness.
Vision is to be a community supporting young people to realize their potential forever learning, forever teaching, in the service of humanity. The mission is to provide a unique, learning-centered environment that progresses young people through an integrated and developmental approach to education. Through meaningful student engagement in learning, we aspire to develop interpersonal, intrapersonal, physical, and cognitive competencies, empowering young people to lead purposeful, fulfilling lives.
